Title: Daughters of Northern Shores
Author: Joanne Bischof
Expected Publication Date: 12 March 2019

Two brothers were raised to know that Viking blood runs in their veins. But when it comes to passion and rivalry, they’re desperate to discover if God’s peace can dwell in their hearts.

Thor Norgaard, a Deaf man in rural Appalachia, once led a secluded life in the shadows of his charismatic brother, Haakon. Now married to the woman whose hand they both sought, Thor is honored to be the keeper of Aven’s heart. With his brother and longtime rival half a world away on the Norwegian ice trade, the Norgaard farm has become a haven—until a decades-old feud with the neighboring farm wrenches the family toward the fiercest confrontation on Blackbird Mountain since the Civil War. Lives are threatened and homes are at stake—especially for Thor, who shows signs of a grave illness brought to him at the first prick of warfare.

When Haakon finally allows the winds to bear him home after four years at sea, he finds the family on the brink of tragedy. Without hesitation, he rises to the challenge of protecting those he loves, but when it comes to his blood-deep rival and the woman he once loved, Haakon must draw lines not so easily marked—ones that shape a battlefield where pride must be broken enough to be restored, and where a prodigal son may finally know not only the healing peace of surrender but also the boundless gift of forgiveness.

    I like the sounds of this one, and it is a new one to me too. Great pick.

  2. I love books set in the Appalachian Mountains (especially anything by Ron Rash), but I went with a book set in East Texas for this week's CWW: Bluebird, Bluebird by Attica Locke.
